Waldorf Salad

Waldorf Salad
The Waldorf salad is one of the quintessential New York dishes, and has been enjoyed the world-over since its inception in the late 19th century. The Waldorf salad could only have been created in a place like New York. After all, it’s eccentric, brash, daring, fruity and international. Above all, it really works. The traditional Waldorf salad can be made by doing the following: Start out with a small, crispy bed of lettuce. To this, add chopped walnuts, apple and celery, dressed in mayonnaise. Grapes are often added too. To add pizzazz, it’s acceptable to add a dash of lime juice, and a little salt and pepper. The Waldorf salad is commonly served as a starter. In our opinion, it goes does well with a cold glass of dry white wine.

In this version of the classic Waldorf Salad, a mayonnaise based dressing with a hint of sugar and lemon juice is stirred into diced apples, celery, walnuts, and raisins.
